Some of you might be too young to know about this album biggrin but it's a classic! Every song is superb.Many of these songs were covered by other artists.

Tapestry Original recording remastered, Extra tracks Edition by Carole King (1999) Audio CD

Don’t hate my guts, but I never could get passed Carole King’s voice, it has always been grating to me. I love other artists’ readings of her voice a lot though.

Aretha Franklin did an incredible remake of "You Make Me Feel (Like A Natural Woman)".

apparently she did such an incredible job that up until now, i always assumed Aretha wrote and sang that song as her own original composition... i had NO idea that was a Carol King remake

Typically referred to as "When the Pawn....." for obvious reasons. Probably my least favorite of her 5 albums but is still good. Not many can have that title and still go platinum.

Interesting, it's been my favourite album of hers for a long time now.



Honestly, I haven't heard it in years.She has set the bar so high that all of them are really good it is a bit like saying this is the worst Crystal. I will give it another listen.
